Top Tips to Choose a Waste Management Company

If your business isn’t in a business where you need regular waste management, then it can seem a tricky thing to decide which company to choose.  Waste management is a multi-faceted business with lots of different areas – everything from factory clearance to foundry clearance.  Often you just need building site clearance or even removal of debris from demolition sites when you are having a renovation.  Here are some top tips on choosing the perfect company for the job.

Waste Management Company Wolverhampton

Reliable and reputable

One of the first things to check with any company you are considering is if they are reliable and reputable.  There are a few ways you can do this – their own website is a good place to stat as this will have reviews and case studies from previous customers.  You can also check on independent review sites – these will often contain reviews posted by people and are separate to the company’s website.

Environmental credentials

A big question when it comes to metal disposal and waste management is that the company has solid environmental credentials.  You want to be working with an accredited waste management company who have the right processes in place and a heavy recycling focus.  Ideally, waste management companies will recycle as much as 95% of waste and aim for near-zero landfill waste.  Also, look for credentials such as ISO as these show they work to the current international standards.

Locally based

It can be useful to have a company working in your area as this cuts down travel time.  But as long as the company cover your area, so covering Wolverhampton and all surrounding areas if you are based here, then this doesn’t need to be a deal breaker.  You will often find a company in Wolverhampton will work across the Midlands & UK wide depending on the situations.

Range of services

It can be worth checking the range of services that the company offers to ensure they handle all areas that you might need.  For example, metal disposal is a big issue as there are various different types of metals that need to be separated off before they can be recycled.  Look for companies that handle ferrous metals like tin and lead as well as non-ferrous metals such as copper or aluminium so that all metal waste is removed.

If the site is one that has plant machinery, look for a company that handles the dismantling and recycling or reselling of this.  The same applies if the site contains a former factory or foundry as there will be specialist equipment needed.

The right price

There is definitely more to the right package than just the price and you want to ensure you are getting all the services you need.  But it is also good to compare price alongside this to make sure you are getting value for money.  Armed with all of this information, you are ready to make a choice of the right waste management partner and ensure that your project has the services you need for it to be a success.
